3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber in color with a white head. Malt and yeast in the nose. Bitter-sweet flavour with a dry acidic finish. I know it's called sparkling, but I'm not into all the carbonation.

Murky straw color,small white head that had a decent amount of hang time,and left a small lace.Malty light fruit aroma with a decent hop presence.The flavor is fairly decent,malty and sort of semi sweet with a mild fruit taste maybe some form of citrus,decent hops flavor.The finish is mild with a malt hop after taste.Pretty good brew IMO and i wouldn't mind having another one for later.Well worth getting if you can find it.

Very high acid. Clean refreshing finish. Not a very complex. Almond, peach notes. Quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very basic, uninspired ale. Average in every way. Nothing bad, but nothing to make me drink again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
After trying one of their extract kits, their pale ale, and now this, I'm thinking I just don't like this brewery. Maybe if I tried a completely different style, if they have one, it could change my mind. Everything seems to have the same yeasty taste that reminds me of the really bad IPA kit of theirs I tried.
I'm not going to go through too much detail, but I will say that while I don't mind sedement in my beer, and I usually like it, this had chunks. Also, the head was non-existant and there was no lace at all.
Tastes okay; a little hops, some citrus hints as well as some grain, but nothing special at all. And I can't get past the yeast taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. English pint glass. Pale amber, cloudy beer. Not much head but plenty of carbonation. Refreshing in the mouth, thin and bubbly with some fruitiness and a different sweet/sour battle going on. Aftertaste is minimal, keeps you drinking it to remember the taste. Would be a good summer refresher and does not give a clue to its 5.8abv. Wish there was a date on the bottles to let you know how old they are. Also, tastes better when poured with the sediment.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light citrus nose. pale gold color with light lacing and not much head. The flavor is pretty mild, lightly bitter but overall a bit starchy it seems. When you pour in the sediment, it really transforms into a pretty decent little beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of carbonation which detracts from the appearance and slightly so from the palate but overall a nice fruity mixture that hides the alcohol well. Easy to drink.

this is a real gem of an ale, nice yeasty fruity aroma. This has a well balanced flavour with a really nice fruitiness and balance of bitterness and maltiness. This is proof that Australia can make a great beer consistently without having to be too "fancy". Other beers come and go, but this is a beer that is definately a stayer.
